Films and Talks on the Representation of Drugs in Cinema
Drugs in Film – A Cinematic Symposium is a film festival in Berlin that will analyze how the representation of drugs in film can highlight societal views while also affecting our collective perception and cultural trends. The festival presents a series of films, new and old, that demonstrate the diverse representation of narcotics and stimulants on screen.
Trainspotting revolves around Mark Renton, a heroin addict who is deeply immersed in the Edinburgh drug scene. He tries to clean up and get out, despite the allure of the drugs and influence of friends.
